Written communication in hospitality industry

Whether it’s an hotel description on your website, an email sent to a guest, a memo to give to a colleague, a message to deliver to the hotel guest, a report for the Manager, or a social media post, all forms of written communication in hospitality industry have the same goal of disseminating information clearly and concisely.

Poor writing skills often lead to mistakes and sometimes even potential legal risks. A message written on the web, of whatever type it is, especially in the digital age we are living in, continues to live, perhaps forever so, there are two things to remember about written communication in hospitality industry: first, write well: take care of the contents down to the smallest details, make sure the content of the message is something you want to promote or be associated with in the long term.

Written description of hotel sample

In the hospitality industry it is always preferable to give a comprehensive and truthful description of the hotel to the potential guest. It makes sense to mention the building if this is of particular relevance, for example if the hotel is housed inside an ancient castle or an historic villa. It always follows the place where the hotel is located, for example in the city center, a few steps far from the sea or on the hill with spectacular views of the valley.
Another important aspect to take into consideration in written hotel description is its accessibility and its centrality with respect to the main tourist and/or business travel-related attractions such as cathedral, museums, parks, conference centers or particularly important institutions.
